Boasting a historical association of power, family and career pride, you’d be forgiven for thinking that pinky rings are the reserve for the social elite. But we’ve got some good news – not only have we notice them creeping up all over our Instagram feeds, we’ve spotted the humble accessory on the fingers of Priyanka Chopra, Blake Lively and more, so you know they’re, like, super cool.
Whether you’re a maximalist, classic dresser or trendsetter, there’s a style of little finger bling to suit everyone, with jewellery designers and style icons finding cool new ways to make the pinky ring thrifn their own.
One of our favourite new collections, ISTANA has just launched ‘The Pinky Promise’ – a stylish range comprising diamonds, sapphires, rubies and garnets set in 18K white, black and yellow gold that have us swooning. Whether dressed down for the day with a causal outfit or to accessorize a glam evening outfit, they make the perfect style statement.
The latest wave of pinky rings also include options beyond the traditional chunky signet design, so you can try out the trend even if the heavy look isn’t your taste. Dinny Hall at Harvey Nics has a great selection of more delicate designs preferred by Lucy Hale, and they’re also great for those who tend to wear multiple rings at once because they look even cooler when stacked.

So whether you go for a classic heirloom-style signet, something delicate and understated, or a combinations of weights and details, you’ll never want to leave your little finger bare ever again.
That’s a pinky promise.
